How entrepreneurial are you and your school?


17/10/2014

The sense of initiative and entrepreneurship is one of eight key competences for lifelong learning promoted in the European Union. The Virtual Guide to Entrepreneurial Learning is a practical and useful tool for teachers in primary, secondary and vocational schools, who want to integrate entrepreneurial education in the teaching methods and learning processes inside and outside the classroom.

 The Virtual Guide offers teachers:

Best practice tools and methods are collected from entrepreneurial schools all over Europe, adapted for pan-European use and tested before implemented in the guide. The materials are designed for different age levels, from primary to upper secondary, including vocational schools. A wide range of learning outcomes related to entrepreneurial learning are promoted, such as creativity, leadership, business and innovation skills.

All the tools and methods are translated from the original language and into English for the adaptation and testing, and soon, the resources will be available in eight languages, including English, Finnish, Slovak, Norwegian, Portuguese, Polish, Italian and Danish. The Virtual Guide will continue to grow, and selected national tools and resources will be translated into English and gradually published on the website of the Virtual Guide. Through review tools, teachers can leave comments and recommendations to their colleagues.
